Removed my DV spacer from Ramon ^ and my 034 Res-X and installed the OEM bits as normal. This was at the request of the dealership so they could continue diagnosing my interior noises. Low and behold, like I told them, the noises and other issues are still present. So I contacted the dealership and VWoA (to update my issues with my reference number from my last visit).
I wish my car didn't have all these terrible noises. I guess it was a siesta build at Pueblo. I bought the car because it was a one year only unicorn for the USA, and if they can't fix the issues and have to do a buy back I will be devastated. I don't want a MK7.5. I want my MK7 Sport. Fuck.
There is some plastic trim you can touch or knock on that causes some crazy rattles and noises. It's pretty ridiculous. Sounds like a 14 year old Asian vehicle instead of a 1 year old German vehicle.... or my 20 year old German vehicle that was modded to be a rattle box and super noisy.
